Predominantly captured across the scenic South Island of New Zealand, this 7-part video series begins with the fundamentals of photography, covering off on the core basics of understanding your cameras functions, the exposure triangle, effectively composing a scene,  shooting in manual mode and then moving into more advanced techniques such as exposure blending, focal length bending and handheld focus stacking.

Heading into the field, follow Will and explore a variety of locations and scenarios. From capturing mountains, seascapes, forests, waterfalls and the night sky, each episode concentrates on different techniques and methods, all categorised, progressing in technicality along the way. 

You’ll learn what to look for (and avoid) in the field, how to approach and compose a scene, adjusting settings and adapting to changing conditions. After seeing the image captured in the field, you’ll then learn how the file is processed. RAW and PSD files are included for you to follow along and edit in step-by-step Photoshop lessons. Commencing with the basics of single exposure editing and working up to techniques such as layer masking, focal length blending and focus stacking. This is the entire image making process all broken down in a simple and effective way!

‘Rebirth’ – Start To Finish

In this video tutorial, the entire image making process is covered for one of my portfolio images, beginning out in the field through to the post processing at home.  We commence in the lush forests of Fiordland New Zealand, where you will learn the theory of composition and how to find some harmony in chaotic environments, the settings used to capture the image, as well as my handheld focus stack method to achieve the final result.

An in-depth processing segment makes up the majority of this tutorial, where I run through step-by-step the multiple adjustments made to the raw file in order to create a sense of depth, atmosphere and separation in the image. You will learn how to combine files in a focus stack, how to create a ‘dreamy’ effect across the scene and in isolated areas of the image, colour work to seperate the green tones, boosting natural light, removing flares and distracting areas, warping methods for better symmetry, mid-tone contrast adjusting and much more.

My unique processing methods are simple and effective. There are no plug-ins, presets, actions or unnecessary luminosity masking. You will learn to do everything manually and not rely on using someone else’s automated tricks. Develop for yourself the skills and methods to apply effective techniques across any image.

In this tutorial I only use Adobe Photoshop and Bridge however the theory and most methods can easily be transferred across to Lightroom.
